Apple has created an easy to use, closed system in its iPod+iTunes duo. But, what if you want to get at your iPod’s contents without using iTunes or iPhoto? With the following free downloads you’ll be able to access and extract music, photos and notes with no help from iLife applications.
This new release is the best iPod notes manager I’ve seen yet. iPod Notes allows you to see your complete notes heirarchy and edit them right on the iPod.
And that’s only the beginning. The application also helps you create links to other notes, create notes and folders and sync your notes folder with your Mac.
Keith has come up with a utility that previews the images on your iPod – not the full size copies it puts in the folder, the actual photos in the iPod’s database.
You can also extract photos as pict files – making this a great recovery tool if something goes wrong. Its a great tool for examining and extracting images from your iPod.
There are a hundred solutions for pulling music off your iPod, but this is the newest.
expod is fast, and includes a search feature. Browse by playlist and send selected songs to a directory on your Mac. Simple and sweet.
Eager to get tasks on your iPod? Of course once you ‘pod them, you’ll never remember to browse your notes to check you list. That’s why todoPod doesn’t use notes. Instead of adding your tasks as text, this free application converts your text to audio and sends it to your player.
